We paid homage to the life of the Defender – our iconic, original SUV, which began life 67 years ago as the “Land Rover” and later became known as the Series.

A spectacular parade lap featuring more than 50 pre-1966 Land Rover Series models took place each day around the Goodwood Motor Circuit. A variety of special Series conversions featured in the unique procession, including fire tenders, military vehicles, ambulances and mobile welders, alongside 11 pre-production Land Rover prototypes. One highlight included the bright yellow 1950 Series I Bertram Mills Circus vehicle, which was designed to give the impression that a circus elephant was driving it. The unique collection of Land Rovers were also on display on Lavant Bank for duration of the weekend.

They even had the hobbyist-made center steer.
